Jim in Canada : I have located a semi-hollow body electric Kent guitar that has a body some what like a 335 and the neck like a fender strat. I have no Idea what model it is or value because I can't find out any thing about Kent guitars. If anyone finds a source for more Kent info, I'd love to hear from you... The headstock is similar to a Gibson but the neck was thinner. I'm just looking to replace it for nostalgic reasons.

The company had been formerly owned by a very honest man named Harry Greenberg. It was my 1st guitar and would like to find one to replace it for sentimental reasons - any suggestions as to where these can be found? : Harold i have a old kent electric i have no idea what year it is but has a strat style body w/lp style neck.everything works on it but it does need a headnut. I also tracked down a picture of one that is a Yellow 67 with a Bigsby-Style vibrato (mine lacks this).

I recently bought a solid body one pick-up, with case, that I practise on a lot. It was exclusively distributed by Maxwell Meyers in Texas. I would like to acknowledge the professionalism of people like the late Lee Ingber who was quality minded enough to know that junk will ruin any business. I own a model 820 that was given to me as a present from my Dad around 1966 (bought new from Sears? I've kept it stored for too many years and am currently fixing it up. It was exclusively distributed by Maxwell Meyers in Texas. There was an E-Bay auction for a couple of framed ads which featured this model, plus the 833, 835 and 836 from 1967 (one of the pictures, from what I could tell, looked exactly like mine). I lost it sometime in the 70's, but still have a picture of it.

In fact, at a recording session I was using my Gibson Lespaul and the producer was complaining about the sound of it, so the next day I brought in my Kent and he loved it, it's on two songs on the CD we were working on! I have the ser# (xxx) 3 digits and I believe that it was made in Japan in the Sixty's. It's too bad that the last owners of Southland never learned that, even as their company faded into the sunset of the graveyard of greed. Still has great action, but needs some replacement parts. I also tracked down a picture of one that is a Yellow 67 with a Bigsby-Style vibrato (mine lacks this). It was a sunburst finish cutaway violin shaped body with Bigsby type tailpiece and a tunable bridge with a flip up mute bar.

Hi Harold, I am about to pick up I think the exact guitar you're talking about. It's sounds INCREDIBLE (very vintage) and plays well, though I find the neck very narrow.

I have located a semi-hollow body electric Kent guitar that has a body some what like a 335 and the neck like a fender strat. I have no Idea what model it is or value because I can't find out any thing about Kent guitars. I have always found most of the guitars to be quite playable but overall, the general guitar public in my area seemed to have a low opinion of them. It wasn't long before Southland went to hell in a hand basket. It was exclusively distributed by Maxwell Meyers in Texas. It's sounds INCREDIBLE (very vintage) and plays well, though I find the neck very narrow.

I have the ser# (xxx) 3 digits and I believe that it was made in Japan in the Sixty's. Kent made a lot of "student model" instruments in the 1960's. Earlier in 1972 he sold out to Onsite Energy Systems and everything changed from "let's make the best product at the best price" to "let's see how high we can make our profit margin - to hell with quality". It was originally Japanese made but in the early 80's production was shifted to Korea where an instrument (quality not considered) could be made for a fraction of the cost of Japanese instruments. Harold : : We have a Kent model #KF-24, Made in Korea. If anyone finds a source for more Kent info, I'd love to hear from you... Gary : I, too, am searching for more info on my Kent. Mine is red with "racing stripe" binding on the edge.

CASE IS IN NICE SHAPE FOR AGE, SOME TOLEX MISSING FROM SIDE, AND INNER LINING SHOWING A LITTLE PADDING, BUT ALL SOLID AND ALL LACTHES WORKING.
